It aws It was the perfect dinner for a cold, rainy night in Camden and 40 Paper was exactly the right combination of warm ambience and fabulous Italian fare. We enjoyed a lovely and large arugula salad that had a very light dressing then both enjoyed hearty pasta dishes that were some of the best pastas we have had ever.... More

I read a blog about the Camden area that mentioned this place and we made a point to stop by for the happy hour, which is everyday form 4-6pm. They offer a nice variety of fun mixed drinks as well as other beverages for great prices. They also offer an assortment of small apps, all of which looked good. My... More

My wife and I stopped here for an anniversary dinner while in Camden. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. The service and atmosphere was excellent; the food was outstanding. Wished we lived closer, as this would need to be on our regular outing list.

40paper is a very nice restaurant. Food and cocktails are excellent. And as we think a very warm atmosphere. We were there 3 times in a week, 2 times for dinner and once for cocktails. Every course was very good, tasty, and inventive. Cocktails were very good and harmonic. Nothing to complain. If you are in Camden go there.

This is a small restaurant with a vibrant active bar scene, where people enjoy the delicious small plates offered. There is also some nice outdoor seating. We ate inside where it was a bit dark & very noisy. However, we were quickly delighted by the delicious food. The menu is innovative and the food is excellently prepared and fresh. All... More

Slightly out-of-the-way place with wonderful food. We had arancini as a starter They were great! my husband had the quail which he thought was fabulous. I had clams and homemade pasta. Delicious! They must have a good happy hour because the place was packed when we arrived around six.

Went here with friends while visiting Camden and had an enjoyable meal. We ordered several small plate appetizers to share and topped it off with a few flatbread pizzas. The food was great and the service great as well. The drinks were served promptly and the wine glasses were mostly full. This is a nice restaurant with friendly wait staff... More

Located in the century-old Knox Mill, our bistro is situated on top of the Megunticook River, just between the two waterfalls. At Brevetto, our modern Italian bistro cuisine is designed to pair perfectly with our extensive– and almost exclusively Italian– wine list. Brevetto is Italian for “patent,” and throughout the restaurant you will find turn-of-the-century schematics of wine presses and odd, out-dated food machines. In stark contrast to the complicated workings of a “salami washing machine,” our menu is simple and straightforward. We feature a large menu with a range of grilled pizzas, Italian pastas, and a variety of entrées. In addition to our extensive wine list, we also have a full bar with artisan draft beers and liquors. Enjoy your dinner in our inviting dining room, or on our waterfront deck. Relax with an obscure Italian red wine at our bar, or an extra-dry gin martini on the leather sofa. Brevetto has some of the best of both worlds, right in downtown Camden.
